Dumb Things I've Said To Celebrities Part 2: RUSH - Meltdown

I'm starting to think I saw a lot of dumb things.

RUSH fans, what would you ask the guys from the band? Probably not what I brought up....

Yesterday, I gave you three examples of stupid things I've said to celebrities. You can check out that story here, to find out what I said to Alice Cooper, Tony Stewart and Bill Mahar. Apparently, I could write a story each day about stupid things I say. Ha! Onto today's first dumb comment. I wen

The Vinyl Frontier: An Early 90s Metal Crusher - Meltdown

Each Wednesday I dive into my own record collection and put the spotlight on one album. This week it's a metal crusher from 1990.

What are your thoughts on this album?

Brought to you by Dearborn Music

Each Wednesday I spotlight a different record from my own collection. This week it's a metal staple! What a way to start off the decade, Cowboys From Hell by Pantera. With all the talk of the Pantera show over the weekend, I thought I'd spotlight one of their records from my collection this week.

Three Dumb Things I've Said To Celebrities - Meltdown

I've said some dumb stuff in my life. Here's three times I'm said dumb things to Alice Cooper, Tony Stewart and Bill Maher.

Have you ever said some stupid to anyone famous?

Sometimes you just say dumb stuff. We all do it. Sometimes you say dumb stuff to celebrities. Here's three instances of that from me. Alice Cooper - The first time I met and interviewed Alice Cooper was in the late 90s. Man, I was a huge Cooper fan growing up and couldn't wait to meet the legend.

Violent Night: My Review - Meltdown

Here's my thoughts on Violent Night.....

I went into this movie kind of perplexed. On one hand, I was fired up to see it, but then saw the trailer for it and got a little less excited. On the other hand, a lot of you guys who watched it commented on how good the movie was. I gave it a shot last night and here's what I've come up with.

Here’s What the World is Saying About the Hot New Detroit Lions

Yes, I'm drinking the Blue Kool-Aid. Want some? The Detroit Lions are performing incredibly well as of late. Now, with five games left to play in the regular season, the buzz is at a fever pitch. The Lions beat the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday (Dec. 4), but they didn't just beat them- they dest

Lions fans can be a lot of things, but their rudeness - much like the Lions themselves - rank in the middle of the pack. They are said to "heckle too much" according to a recent survey. Here's the top 10 list of rudest fans in the NFL. 1 - Philadelphia Eagles -- start fights 2 - Las Vegas Ra

I went and saw Bones And All over the weekend. Yes, I'm still in horror movie mode. That movie was interesting, maybe even bizarre. Earlier in the day I was at a local bar watching football with some friends when I happened to notice a trailer for a Christmas horror movie on another TV. I couldn

This week's Frontier features a BADASS album from Megadeth. Watch it here, and check out some pictures from the last time they were in Detroit.

Brought to you by Dearborn Music.

This is easily one of my favorite new albums of 2022. Dave Mustaine and the guys are locked in on The Sick, The Dying...And The Dead. This album rocks from start to finish. The 16th studio album from the thrash giants, this album shows that they're not slowing down at all. The songs are hooky, thras

Great job, Boston!

The UK's Prince and Princess of Wales were booed as they attended a Boston Celtics basketball game earlier this week, and I couldn't be happier. I never understood the devotion people over here, or over in England, have for these folk. Ship 'em back to England is what I say! The two stood for the
